Senior Commercial Operations Officer
"I recommend Laura with the highest praise for her professional development and mentoring skills. ...Her insights and guidance on how to improve... has greatly enhanced my effectiveness."
Organizational life is complex - people, systems, competition... Learning is change. Change can be hard. Conflict is normal.
I care a lot about my clients. I keep adding to my skills, and I don't use cookie cutter approaches. All clients are different.
Work life should be personally meaningful, help us grow, and should be fun - at least some of the time!
VERY few people are natural born leaders.
Most need to learn the craft, and they deserve help doing so.
